Canasia Industries Corporation Applies for Additional Coal Claims

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - July 11, 2008) - Canasia Industries Corporation ("Canasia") (TSX VENTURE:CAJ)(OTCBB:CANSF)(FRANKFURT:45C) wishes to announce that it has applied for an additional 5 townships (approximately 115,000 acres) of contiguous coal permits in Saskatchewan. These new applications are near Goldsource Mines Inc., as well as bordering a coal prospect that recently announced it had a historic drill hole that was underlain by sandstones and shales of the Cretaceous-aged Mannville group.

During a 1994 exploration program on the adjoining property conducted by Consolidated Pine Channel Gold Corp., an approximate 18.84-metre-thick coal interval between 47.70 metres and 66.54 metres depth was identified. The discovery was made while testing a magnetic geophysical anomaly for kimberlite. The historical drill log (TL02-2, assessment report 63E-0004) indicates:

- 47.70 metres to 55.32 metres (7.62 metres): coal;

- 55.32 metres to 66.54 metres (11.22 metres): coal breccia, from 20% to 60% angular coal clasts, mixed with varying amounts of clay, silt and sand.

Neither the rank nor the grade of the coal has been determined. It should also be noted that core recoveries in the coal intersection were as low as 15%, and average less than 50% for the 7.62-metre interval. Readers should note that the above information on historic work performed on the adjoining property was done prior to implementation of National Instrument 43-101, therefore, the results spoken of do not comply with modern reporting standards and should not be relied upon until such time as additional work is completed on the property, including preparation of a National Instrument 43-101 report. As well as there is no guarantee that results found on an adjoining property will be found on the leases applied for, nor is there any guarantee that Canasia will be successful in acquiring any of these permits.
